Here's mine. Im really happy with. My avg mph went up almost 2 mph since I got this bike. My old bike was a very set up GF. The BMC is such a better bike it's crazy. I just upgraded from a XT build to a 10spd x9.

Yellow.

My Supertrial 01, all I've done so far is change the grips (stock BMC ones were shabby to say the least) and made it 1x9, oh and the seat, the std seat was bollocks!

Is good to see more BMC's out there, here in London there just starting to get a name, back in Aus there rare as rocking horse sh&t. The 4stroke is a lovely bike, goes up hill like a rigid! Supertrail goes down hill like a couch heheheheh.

If you haven't tried it already, it's quite a different experience.

You have to continuously pedal since there's so much rolling resistance, and the bike wants to go sideways constantly so it takes a lot of your strength to stay off the saddle and try to keep balance.

It's a workout.

Fresh snow is best. Once a ton of people have made tracks on it (XC skiers and hikers), it's difficult to ride.

I was lucky enough to live in Canada for a year when I was young, used to smooth out the snow drifts on the side of the road and launch into the soft stuff on the bmx. There isn't much else to do in Saskatoon! But yes looking forward to a propper snow hit out on the supertrail, I love hitting the trails when there snotty and slippery to fill up my 'oh sh*t' quota.

Here's a shot of the bike after yesterday in the bog hole known as Epping Forest.

And yes after winter it will need a full re-build, such is life......

09 Trailfox

Here is my new 09 Trailfox. This is a warranty frame from BMC after my 07 frame failed. Gotta give BMC kudos for standing by one of their customers.

Damn! Sweet deal!

Anyways, I'm in the process of building up this exact frame right now. I can't wait!

Good looking bike. Taken it out yet?
OH YEAH! I love it!

It's so stable on the rough downhills compared to my '07 TF01.
I'm sure it's a bit harder on the climb due to the 3 degrees difference in the HA slack but I didn't really notice the difference.

This bike is definitely a good. I thought I might swap this frame for a new Pivot Mach 5. After test riding the Mach 5, although a very good bike, has a totally different feel than the Trailfox. The Pivot had a very stiff feel. I am sticking with this bike and loving the ride as well. It eats up the rough stuff and still climbs well for a full suspension bike. For as much travel and as smooth as the suspension is, I can't believe the suspension is as solid on the climb as it is.

My 07 Trailfox. It's an old demo bike that I got earlier this year to replace a hardtail Cannondale. Been slowly swapping out some parts - Elixir 5's, Crossmax SL's, FSA Afterburner 2X9 crankset. It's a very fun ride and perfect for the types of riding I do.

Got rid of my yeti 575 for this bike and love it. This one will stay in the fold for a long time
